Amazing Tranquil Mini Zen Garden
A mini Zen garden have an amazing effect on one’s personality, and also the environment. To create a mini Zen garden, select a garden container that is at least 2 inches deep. Mini Zen gardens are usually rectangular. Clean your garden container, inside and out, with a rag, warm water and dish-washing detergent. If you’re using a wooden box, don’t get it too wet. Dry the container thoroughly. Fill the garden container half full with sand, so that it’s 1 inch deep. Fine sand will give a smoother-look to the garden, while coarser grains of sand will hold the patterns well. Place the rocks and stones, called “ishi” in Japanese landscaping, in the container. Choose rocks and stones that are tall and vertical, low and flat or have an arch in them. Place the rocks and stones in a group of three to form a triad. Introduce a water element, “mizu”, into your garden. You can place a small mirror or a flat rock on the sand to represent water.
Place ornaments, “tenkebutsu,” in your mini Zen garden to add architectural interest. Use a simple tea candle to add the element of light and to tie into the stone lanterns often found in full-size Zen gardens. If you have any small objects, crystals or even pieces of jewelry that have meaning for you, place them in the container. Don’t introduce too many ornaments, just feature one or two, leaving plenty of unadorned sand. Smooth out the sand with an old credit card or piece of card. Traditionally, Zen gardeners create patterns around the objects in the garden, forming a seascape with the rocks and ornaments as islands in the sea. Create your own sand patterns with the fork or comb, or use a chopstick to draw shapes in the sand.
